Hi Olivia,
Thanks for the response. I have been hoping that someone who knew Terry would answer. My first name is also Olivia! Terry and I roomed together in the 1969-70 show. She was a great friend and I have been trying to locate her by various means for over 20 years. I had to leave the show due to a really bad situation in my lower spine, one that the surgeon at Emory University said would have crippled me permanently if I had not had the surgery within 6 months of leaving. Terry and I had already planned to room together for 70-71 but when I went to rehearsals it was clear that major surgery was in the near future and I would never go back. I was in terrible pain during the latter part of the 69-70 show and she really helped me through it. I could hardly sleep at all and she adjusted rather nicely to stepping over me in the bathroom at night since I slept on the floor most of the time. She never complained at all. We had many interests in common...reading, history, museums, art, etc. so had a great time together and she was like a big sister to me. I am 58 now and believe she would be 65. We corresponded for a while after I had the surgery but I moved a couple of times and she moved and we just lost touch. I have been doing internet searches for years and just recently came across a Terry S. Kessler (I believe her middle name is Sue), same age and, I believe the same birthdate (6.17.41). This person was in Florida (Terry loved FL) but had moved more than a year ago so there was no forwarding address. We both had June birthdays and I'm almost sure that was her date. It was just a week or so after mine. I remember her comment to me after she asked if I wanted to room with her and found out when my birthdate was, "Do you think two Geminis could room together happily." We did so quite well. I remember she married a Steve Belk and they lived in CA and she was a CPA. Olivia, if you have any info that would be helpful, I sure would appreciate it. I would love to find her again. Maybe if we put pur heads together.....
When did you skate with her? How many years were you with the show?
All the best,
Ellen

        Hi, You might want to post your inquiries on the new message board that is connected to the HOI website as I am not too sure how many people access this one anymore. You might have better luck... more
